Skyrunning (“high altitude running”) is a running and climbing that take place in rough mountain terrain with a vertical drop of 1000 meters. Every year, amateurs of this sport gather in the neighbor of “Rosa Khutor” resort to participate in “Sugar marathon” (“Sakharny marathon”) — 26 km race with a vertical drop of 1600 meters. The highest point of the route — Sakharnaya Golova peak (Sakharny Pseashkho), hence the name of the marathon.
For the first time in the history of the competition, a week before the start of the marathon the amateur race will be held at “Rosa Khutor” resort for athletes and those who have wanted to try his/her hand at this sport for a long time. Anyone will be able to participate in the amateur competition: “Rosa Mountain Race”.
